The International Student Identity Card (ISIC) is encouraged for purposes of identification and because it offers discounts and benefits. It also offers coverage for medical evacuation and return of remains. All other students are advised to purchase the ISIC. ILO staff will make the ISIC for you. You will need the following:
- Passport sized photo (2×2) – snapshots are okay. Photos are available on-site
- Check or money order for $25 made out to Boise State (The ISIC Premium is $99).
- Your Boise State student ID card or other proof of student status
- Application is available for completion in our office.
The ISIC provides card holders with a toll-free help line staffed by multilingual representatives who are prepared to advise travelers on required immunizations for travel abroad, as well as help travelers in case of medical, financial, or legal emergencies abroad. Each basic ISIC (which must be purchased in the United States) basic medical and dental insurance when traveling outside the United States, including emergency evacuation coverage up of $300,000, baggage delay ($100) and a 24-hour, toll-free Help Line. All holders of U.S. purchased cards are covered regardless of citizenship. The ISIC Premium has additional coverage.
